Don’t get too excited, since the format and other details about the anime were not shared.
KonoSuba follows Kazuma, a NEET who meets a goddess named Aqua after a pathetic death and is offered to be reincarnated in a parallel world. Kazuma is allowed to bring one item or power with him, but he decides to bring Aqua out of spite.
Tasked with defeating a Demon King, Kazuma finds himself stuck with the absent-minded Aqua, the masochistic knight Darkness, and an explosion obsessed mage named Megumin. The party attempts to combat Demon King while living a luxurious life, but they must overcome their troublesome quirks first.
KonoSuba has been immensely popular since its days as a web novel. The series was created by Natsume Akatsuki and is illustrated by Kurone Mishima. Studio Deen has produced two anime season, and an upcoming visual novel is being created by 5pb (Steins;Gate).
What do you hope KonoSuba‘s new anime will be? A new season, a movie, or an OVA about the magic of pachinko?
